Hi Annette and histonetters,
I am having same problem constantly on the automated IHC staining
systems from LabVision.
I do cleaning of machine after 2-3 running independently on number of
I clean machine, but do my staining manually; I can't waist tissue and
I do call company; they are very nice people, came several times, check,
but problem still there.
It is so frustrating:-(:-(:-(

Subject: [Histonet] Slide Staining Variability
For those of you who use automated IHC staining systems, has anyone had
issues with part of the slide staining and the rest of the slide not? We
have adopted the policy of placing the control on with the patient
a more comprehensive check of the system. However, we occasionally find
control is acceptable but the patient fails to even counterstain. This
been an intermittent problem on the Ventana Benchmark for some time, but
frequency has been increasing to almost daily.

Could anyone tell me if they're using the Leica AutoStainer XL (ST5010)
with the integrated coverslipper (CV5030)?
Also, can you tell me if you've experienced any trouble with it and how
long you've been using it?
